Re: Is Zheng Jie the best player in the 21st century to have NOT made the Top 10?
There are plenty of players with more raw talent than Jie, but that's not what career bests are about.
I think two GS semifinals is hard to argue against when answering this question. I mean, 2 GS SFs is not that much fewer than many of the girls who had top 5 peaks, let alone top 10, which is what we are talking about.
How many GS SFs did Myskina make for example? Or players like Suarez, Sugiyama, Hantuchova, Kerber, Chakvetadze, etc, who all have career highs much higher than Jie? When considering real top ten players' careers bests Jie doesn't seem out of place.
